Damian Lillard Tires of ROY Questions?
Damian Lillard knows the questions won’t stop.
“It don’t matter what I do,” he said, “you’re going to ask me about Rookie of the Year.”
“If I have a bad game: ‘How does this (effect) your Rookie of the Year?’ If I have a good game …”
Then, the questions become declarations.
Lillard, the first-year player, won the starting point guard position even before training camp started. The love and devotion from Trail Blazers fans soon followed. And for his next prize. … well, the trophy for Rookie of the Year will not be rewarded until the end of the season. However after performances like Sunday, when he hit the game-winning 3-pointer in the Blazers’ 95-94 victory over the New Orleans Hornets, Lillard better prepare for more questions because his lead in the rookie race has only widened.
